CCG is the new MOBA.

I'm sure they're working on a new Elder Scrolls, but I doubt it'll be announced already.

This shit is getting ridiculous, I am not being barred from taking my laptop onto a plane. At some point we have to accept some risk and that's ok, we can't try to prevent every possibility. There are better ways to pre-screen people.

It's all really starting to point towards money. Let's force people to unpack everything, making the security check such a fucking hassle that nobody wants to put up with it anymore. Oh look, there's another option, pay $85 to ignore our bullshit security checks!

You can no longer bring any kind of electronic entertainment on planes. So it stands to reason that airlines will soon start to offer "on-demand" entertainment for a "moderate fee."

Bah.

But why taking them down permanently? When there is no cost of moderating them, only preserving the data (which takes marginal resources, I'm sure), why take down hundreds of thousands of posts, some of which can be dear to their creators? It costs close to nothing to you. Why not leave the history accessible?

Valve: "Because fuck you, that's why."

I don't know why they're still worried. He's been using an unsecured phone for months, it's really not a question of IF he's compromised anymore. He's compromised, end of story.

The only thing we can now wonder about is by how many nation states.

“We view Kerbal Space Program as a new, long-term franchise that adds a well-respected and beloved IP to Take-Two’s portfolio as we continue to explore opportunities across the independent development landscape.”

Yay. Long-term franchise. Ie, get ready to pay if you want more Kerbal.

Is this playable across the web, or do all people need to be in the same location?

It's a shame they only make like five billion dollars a year off Steam, otherwise they might have been able to afford just transferring the data over to their new site, rather than deleting all of it.

But that would seem like customer service, and apparently Gabe & Co are deathly fucking allergic to that concept.

I wonder if the court offered to hypnotize you in order to aid recollection and you refused if that would be considered contempt?

I'm sure some shitwick judge would rule that.

All of this could of course easily be settled by SCOTUS making a determination once and for all if being forced to produce a password to an encrypted device is a violation of your Fifth Amendment right. (it is.)

But apparently SCOTUS is too busy with... whatever, to make a ruling on what's likely to be one of the most important decisions of the digital age. Or, the government knows which way SCOTUS would vote, since there's only one way to vote that doesn't flagrantly shit all over the Constitution, and they are urging SCOTUS to not hear the case, so they can keep their bullshit little procurement party alive.

Why is cost saving a bad thing

I'm not saying it's a bad thing—their engineer is pretending that cost was never the issue, then contradicts himself literally in the very same paragraph.

To be fair, these days there are a lot more people with solid broadband connections than there were even ten years ago. When you have cable or fiber with 10 Mbps upstream, it makes for a more responsive game if you're connecting directly to other players. As we all know, even a tiny bit of added responsiveness makes a big difference in an online twitch shooter, so I assume that's what they're going for. Ultimately, I'd rather wait and see how well it actually works in the game before I start bitching.

That's fair enough, but the downside is that if you get one player who thinks he can play on his fucking potato, everyone in that instance has a shit connection because of that one guy.

Most Mass Effect MP games I play are fine, but every now and then there's another one of those who play on a 26K baud modem, and bam, have fun glitching all over the place.

Why peer-to-peer? Are we trying to save money?
Matt: Nope! We've invested heavily in new server infrastructure for Destiny 2, including using cloud servers for gameplay for the first time. We really believe this is the best model for all of Destiny 2's varied cooperative and competitive experiences. Engineering will always involve tradeoffs and cost-benefit analysis

What's the tradeoff for client-server, exactly? That it works great and everyone has a smooth match?

Oh wait, cost-benefit analysis. So you ARE trying to save money.

Nice trailer, looks interesting. Dude over at Ars was basically orgasming all over it, though. "OMG IT LOOKS LIKE AN ACTUAL MOVIE IT IS TEH MOST GORGEOUSEST!".

Yeah, because we've never seen absurdly beautiful trailers from Ubisoft before that later turn into "eh" graphics when the game gets released. Rolleyes
